    I can't seem to find out how to download a single file or Dir? I just assume this can be done with cPanel but don't see how

    thanks for any tips....

    Does that mean you can't download a single file or Dir with cPanel? Or that you don't know how to do it either?;)

    cPanel comes with a File Manager. Try it!

    http://www.cpanel.net/docs/cpanel/File_Manager.htm

    As Infopro recommended, you'd be better off using an FTP client. FTP standard for File Transfer Protocol - it's the standard (although insecure) method for transferring files from A to B.

    Thanks, I have used the File Manager and have some FTP tools, no problems. Sometimes I like to edit/work on my site thru a firewall from my job that does not allow me to use any FTP tools. I can Upload files via the cPanel File Manager thru the firewall but just do not see a way to DownLoad files, just thought I was over looking something in the cPanel File Manager. It looks to me that you can not download files with cPanel File Manager. Is this correct?

    Thanks for your replys.

    Download capability lacking compared to a competitor

    I too have the same problem and would enjoy if File Manager had the capability to download files/directories directly from it (instead of having to depend on FTP all the time).

    Another control panel software has such download capability. It has a check box next to every file/directory whereby whichever file/dir you select, you can then simply click on the download, edit, move, copy, etc. button. WORKS GREAT!

    I wonder why cPanel doesn't provide this download capability?
